Smolny Convent

Today’s photo comes from my approach to the Smolny Convent in Saint Petersburg, Russia a few months ago.

The name of the church in today’s photo is Церковь Спаса на Крови (Church of the Savior on Blood). Well known as one of the visual highlights of Saint Petersburg, Russia, the church began a many years renovation project just days before I arrived so the overall view was not what I was hoping for. If you want to avoid the scaffolding you’ll want to wait to visit until at least 2025.
